    The "herald:" stanza specifies the initial message to be printed out when getty or
    login prompts for a login name.  This value is a string that is
    written out to the login port.



    The "Banner" directive



    The "herald:" and "motd:" stanzas.

    The herald: and motd: lines are for multiline messages before and after login.

    And after login /etc/motd.
